I felt the urge to start the Radeon Archipelago Club with my HD 6670 DDR3, being the first Northern Islands card in the club. Still looking for the first person with a (few) Southern Islands card(s) in possesion to join. And we have found M1dg3t as the first HD 7xxx owning member.

All HD 5xxx, 6xxx and 7xxx series cards are welcome, as well as Sea Islands cards (including review samples of those 8xxx's ;)). Multimedia cards (e.g. HD 6450) included, as long as they are dedicated because APUs belong to a CPU club IMHO.

Pictures and benchmarks of my HD 6670 will come soon, albeit nothing that impressive can be expected of the benchies (being at 1280x1024 helps though ;)).

Note: Posting 3DMark Vantage benchies is of course appreciated, but because we haven't yet standardised and "scientificised" (;)) the benchmarks this is not having much of a point. I shall post info about this later (we especially have to see to deal with the difference in resolutions and the fact that the basic version of 3DMark (except edition 11) don't allow for resolution changes makes it tricky for me to do this in 5 mins so I will come back to you later). See below the list of members to see details about the benchmarking.

=================================

The EIC Massmark

Okay, the "massmark" will not include any game benchmarks because I don't want to lock out people who don't own certain games and keeping stuff blank is useless. It includes Furnark (only 6 mins in bench mode, so your card will be safe), Heaven 3.0 and 3Dmark 11, using the settings as specified in the document in the first link below. I will throw the matter in SPSS or PSPP to analyse the data after we are done filling in the spreadsheet. I hope and assume you will be honest about this, so no screenshots are needed.

Documentation with guidelines and information on the test settings

You should know enough now, to be able to fill in your stuff in the spreadsheet (link below).

Spreadsheet to fill in your data - Fixed the issue with the forgotten column!

Closing time will be december 1st, assuming that those who did not participate yet at that moment did not want to.



-------------------------------------------------
* All cards seeming to be of reference design won't get the brands specified, because it wouldn't make sense to do so. If your card is non-reference, please specify the brand. Else giving the model nummer (HD xxxx) is sufficient.
Exceptions to this are multicard setup in order to have better clarity.

You know, I got two lovely 6870s that do great. One of them is a reference card that I ordered the day they were released. I was upgrading from a Radeon HD 4850. :cool:

Nice cooler. Did you simply change the stock fans or did you do more to it?
It's a Sapphire HD6950 2GB with broken fans that I got used for $120 :D (+$32 shipping from the US :mad:) I removed the fan assembly and wedged two standard 80mm fans on it:



I thought I'd have to use zip ties to hold the fans but pressure was enough.

Indeed pressure seems to be enough, judging from the pictures.

As promised, here are pics and overclock results. I used Akasa thermally conductive adhesive tape to ad heatsinks to the back of the VRAM chips at the back of the card.





The cooler does not look surprisingly beautiful, but does its work well (very quiet and cool, around 30C GPU temp even when slightly overclocked)





GPU-Z validation of the OC: http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ghkf/


I managed to OC until 860/782 from 800/667, not bad. Metro 2033 went from 28.67 fps average (min 5.37, max 63.52) to 32 fps average (minimum 5.66, maximum 78.55). Mind you, in the middle section of each loop there is a massive frame drop that represents the usual game performance badly.
Here are the links to .zip archives with the HTML reports:
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?0au7c6310mwwdm9 (stock, i.e. 800/667)
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ajibv4q5sbktxi9 (860/782)


Heaven 3.0 showed some improvements as well, although the settings I have used were a bit weird (medium shader quality, high tex quality, no AA, 4x bilineair AF but with Ambient Oclusion etc.).


BTW, it plays all my games just fine at stock settings, so probably I will keep it at stock to guarantee its durability.

So Akasa Has thermal adhesive tape? I thought they only had a TIM which were applied to heatsinks. I used AS Epoxy mixed with AS5 compound for heatsinks on my laptop video cards ram.
